Nick Bosa to focus on 2019 NFL Draft rather than returning to Ohio State

Smart move for the potential No. 1 overall pick.

Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa, a strong candidate for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft has decided to begin full-scale preparations for next April. Bosa suffered a core muscle injury in September and following surgery, he was expected to return in November. Instead of rehabbing for a return to face Michigan and compete for a national title, Bosa will not return to the university, according to The Columbus Dispatch’s Tim May....

It's problems with the basics and much more with 49ers' suspect secondary

Another week and more busts and missed communication. The 49ers had a shot at beating the Packers, but familiar secondary issues remain.

Rams continue to distance themselves from rest of NFC West

Don’t get me started.

The San Francisco 49ers lost (yet another) heartbreaker to the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football. The loss ends a near decade long dominance of the Monday night games, but much worse, allows the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks to trail further away with the lead of the NFC west.

The Seahawks are back to .500, the Rams remain undefeated and the Arizona Cardinals remembered they were the Arizona Cardinals about midway into their Sunday matchup against...

49ers’ Shanahan, Sherman support Saleh after 33-30 loss to Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh received unprompted support from head coach Kyle Shanahan and cornerback Richard Sherman after the 49ers surrendered 521 yards and had multiple breakdowns in the secondary in a 33-30 loss t...

Report: 49ers ‘very likely’ to sign QB Tom Savage

The 49ers need some insurance in case starting QB C.J. Beathard gets hurt (odds seem high of that happening). Potentially enter * shudder * Tom Savage

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has said since Jimmy Garoppolo suffered his torn ACL that if the roster could accommodate it, he would like to add a third quarterback to the depth chart. Injuries have been a problem all season long, and so the 49ers have stuck with C.J. Beathard and Nick Mullens as their two quarterbacks.

That may...

3 things we learned following the Packers loss (and 2 things I still think about)

Turnovers, Aaron Rodgers and 33 points. Let’s look at what we learned in Week 6.

Did we really need the heartbreaking games to come back in 2018? I was fine with them being locked away.

I said if Davante Adams and/or Jimmy Graham was let loose it was over for the 49ers. Well, look what happened. Now we get to be subjected to a week of Aaron Rodgers highlights. Thanks, 49ers.

There are some things we can take from this, no matter how small they may be. Here are three things we learned:...

Is Robert Saleh’s seat hotter after 49ers-Packers?

Bring back the heat-o-meter. After 30 points against the Packers, is Saleh’s seat getting hotter?>

The San Francisco 49ers suffered another heartbreaking loss to the Green Bay Packers to the tune of 33-30. There was questionable officiating, but there was also 33 points allowed. There was some stupid turnovers, but there was also 33 points allowed. There were points where the defense was dominant and Aaron Rodgers had no idea what to do.

But. 33 points. Allowed.

Whether it’s Aaron...

Week 7 NFL power rankings

That was ... crushing.

The San Francisco 49ers lost a heart-breaker on Monday Night Football to close out Week 6. They dropped a 33-30 decision to the Green Bay Packers thanks to a last second field goal that capped a 10-play, 81 yard drive in which it took barely over a minute for Aaron Rodgers to reach into their chests and firmly rip out the team’s heart.

The 49ers dropped to 1-5 with the loss, and now sit tied with four other teams for the worst record in the league. For the fans of...

Golden Nuggets: Another heartbreaker

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Tuesday October 16, 2018

Boy, I’m really getting sick of this.

The 49ers blew a lead and lost (yet again) another heartbreaker. This time to none other than many 49ers fans’ most hated foes: The Green Bay Packers.

Prepare yourselves. This week will be filled with Aaron Rodgers praise on how great he is. How stuck in it to the end, how the Packers NEVER GAVE UP.

And nothing on the missed holding call, two intentional groundings, missed PI (on the...

49ers’ rejuvenated play ruined by Rodgers’ rally

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Memo to the NFL: The 49ers are actually quite entertaining in prime time. Six days after the league booted the 1-4 sad sacks out of a national-television slot, the 49ers were involved in a wild and heartbreaking 33-30 Monday ...

Healthy Breida leads productive ground

GREEN BAY, Wis. — What ankle injury? After he was initially termed doubtful to play Monday by head coach Kyle Shanahan, 49ers running back Matt Breida played against the Packers with his bum leg and was part of a strong first-half rushing atta...

Jimmie Ward was pulled due to hamstring injury

That’s why you watched Greg Mabin. And that’s why you watched Greg Mabin get gashed.

One of the more concerning things on the 49ers loss to the Green Bay Packers Monday Night was the pull of Jimmie Ward. The 49ers pulled him in favor of Greg Mabin and Ward never saw the field the rest of the night. Ward wasn’t playing bad at all until hitting the bench either.

So what gives?

Turns out it was due to a hamstring injury. Kyle Shanahan told the media in his post-game press conference...

This might be the worst loss of the Shanahan era

That loss hurts, and caps what was a fun game until the final minutes.

I’m running out of Super Bad Mario and RKOs from out of nowhere to lift our spirits. I’ll have to find videos not referencing video games.

The San Francisco 49ers 33-30 loss stings. Especially when they were overcoming turnovers and dumb mistakes throughout the game. It seems even more spoiled when the officials hand Aaron Rodgers an illegal contact penalty (and yes, it was illegal contact).

It’s a short week,...

Winners, losers from 'Monday Night Football' in Week 6

The Green Bay Packers hosted the San Francisco 49ers on “Monday Night Football” in Week 6. The game got off to a pretty hectic pace with both teams scoring quick touchdowns. That pace never really let up as both teams gave their all in what was a very entertaining contest. In the end, the Packers prevailed on a Mason Crosby field goal with time expiring, beating the 49ers by three points, 33-30. These are the biggest winners and losers from the game. Winner: C.J. Beathard had a heck of a...

Last minute field goal results in a heartbreaking loss for 49ers on Monday Night Football.

The 49ers defense picked a bad time to remember they are the 49ers defense. C.J. Beathard picked an even worse time to remember he’s C.J. Beathard.

If you saw this game unfolding you haven’t been watching the 49ers much this year. In what many thought would be a “boring” Monday Night Football game, the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers brought what may be one of the more entertaining games of the year. Yeah I said it. While the 49ers lost 33-30, it still provided a night of...

Marquise Goodwin's big return not enough for 49ers' upset

He ripped the Packers for two long scores, but CJ Beathard went to Goodwin deep one too many times and it cost the 49ers.

Twitter reacts to Marquise Goodwin scoring two first-half TDs

The first half of Monday’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers belonged to San Francisco receiver Marquise Goodwin. Goodwin already had one long touchdown pass in the first quarter (watch here). In the second, he added another long score. : ESPN pic.twitter.com/F0M0yMMzc8 — NFL (@NFL) October 16, 2018 Twitter went nuts over his dominating half of football. It’s certainly been a coming out party for the speedy receiver.

Just when it looked like Aaron Rodgers and Co. were going to run away from the San Francisco 49ers, C.J. Beathard and Marquise Goodwin responded.
